Active learning is a promising way for sentiment classification to reduce the annotation cost. In this paper, we focus on the imbalanced class distribution scenario for sentiment classification, wherein the number of positive samples is quite different from that of negative samples. This scenario posits new challenges to active learning. To address these(More)
For ultrathin gate oxide, soft breakdown (SBD) has been extensively studied but not fully integrated into circuit reliability simulation. Using a 6T SRAM cell as a generic circuit example, the time-dependent SBD was incorporated into circuit degradation analysis based on the exponential defect current growth model [1]. SRAM cell stability degradation due to(More)
To interpret the projected image of a moving object, the visual system must integrate motion signals across different image regions. Traditionally, researchers have examined this process by focusing on the integration of equally ambiguous motion signals. However, when the motions of complex, multi-featured images are measured through spatially limited(More)
The intrinsic failure mechanisms and reliability models of state-of-the-art MOSFETs are reviewed. The simulation tools and failure equivalent circuits are described. The review includes historical background as well as a new approach for accurately predicting circuit reliability and failure rate from the system point of view.
It is now clear, contrary to previous conclusions, that motion may be conveyed by purely chromatic stimuli. The question considered here is how the mechanisms for assessing motion of luminance and chromatic stimuli differ. The dependence on contrast of amplitude thresholds for the perception of oscillatory motion was measured. The targets were Gabor patches(More)
Huntington and related neurological diseases result from expansion of a polyglutamine (polyQ) tract. The linear lattice model for the structure and binding properties of polyQ proposes that both expanded and normal polyQ tracts in the preaggregation state are random-coil structures but that an expanded polyQ repeat contains a larger number of epitopes(More)
—Based on some new accelerated lifetime models and failure equivalent circuit modeling techniques for the common semiconductor wear out mechanisms, simulation program with integrated circuit emphasis (SPICE) can be used to characterize CMOS VLSI circuit failure behaviors and perform reliability simulation. This paper used a simple SRAM circuit as an example(More)
Text in images and videos is a significant cue for visual content understanding and retrieval. In this paper, we present a fast and effective approach to locate text lines even under complex background. First, our algorithm uses the stroke filter to calculate the stroke maps in horizontal, vertical, left-diagonal, right-diagonal directions. Then a 24-(More)
Brainstem A2/C2 catecholamine (CA) neurons in the solitary tract nucleus (NTS) are thought to play an important role in the control of food intake and other homeostatic functions. We have previously demonstrated that these neurons, which send extensive projections to brain regions involved in the regulation of appetite, are strongly and directly activated(More)
